is a suspect to embargo. -- is subject to u.n. embargo. there is so much at stake here, if you could -- what specific leverage might the united states employed in those direct discussions that are taking place with the iraqis? intodo not want to go great detail here about our discussions with iraqis. we have discussed the united states resolution with the iraqis. in a sense, in the end, what matters is the government of iraq understand that its own interests will be best served not by facilitating the iranian efforts to prolong the crisis in syria, but rather in bringing about a transitional government that will have good relations with the government in iraq. >> understanding by the iraqi government would be helpful. action by the iraqi government would be necessary to ensure this takes place. i would like to focus on two types of aid. one is military. there is a difference of opinion here on capitol hill. about whether or not provide direct military assistance to the opposition. the argument is made that it is really hard to know where these weapons are going, that they might wind up in th
? guest: i spent five years in iraq as the u.n. spokesman, i got to know it intimately. let me tell you that iraq is a pretty much destroyed country. in many ways.d physically and otherwise. there is no reconciliation. war in iraq weof find that the country is more divided than ever. as we have seen from john they's visit today, tensions between the united , nots and this government very cordial. imbued with a lot of tension. a lot coming back from the community of nations they have not really a implemented. that it is all because of a constitution that failed the entire public at large. basically taking segments of society and addressing themselves to them. host: this unannounced trip that you just indicated in iraq, these officials with the president on his trip, the associated press pointed out that there were a series of .eetings over flights iran says that this is humanitarian aid and that syria is getting the weapons or else. concern, as the israelis feel that regardless of everything going on, they look to the north and in syria they see it disintegrating. weapons are flowing int

in the u.n. or the international criminal court. >> we'll see whacomes out. and then john kerry is going to follow up on this. but i suspect that from the way that the wording is coming out there may be a softening of positions on both sides on this in terms of settlement. a restraining settlement activity. >> rose: and palestinian initiatives in the u.n.. >> right. >> rose: okay. the last one is empower secretary of state kerry. >> he hasn't done that yet. he really needs to do it because he's given this speech which has raised expectations sky-high about what the united states is going to do in the peace process. and if he doesn't back kerry up, because kerry is the one that is going to be doing it, kerry won't be able to succeed. >> my guess is knowing secretary kerry and knowing secretary clinton, that secretary kerry will give this because he passionately is interested in this more tension, individually on his own, than secretary clinton. >> he says it that the time, sorry, that the time for middlest envoy is over. >> he is a secretary that is widely prceived as being verylose to th

. all the way there in new york where you are. the u.n. security council tonight behind closed doors, ambassadors from around the world, went behind closed doors to discuss the syrian chemical weapons situation. as you noted, it also dominated here in jerusalem. the press conference the president had with the israeli prime minister. he made very clear while this is still being investigated, they plan to hold the syrian regime accountable. take a listen. >> when you start seeing weapons that can cause potential devastation and mass casualties, and you let that genie out of the bottle. then you are looking potentially at even more horrific scenes than we have already seen in syria. and the international community has to act on that additional information. >> the international community has to act. that is the suggestion about action, at least down the road. i spoke a few moments ago to an israeli official here who says their fear in the israeli government is just not about the syrian regime using chemical weapons in the days ahead whether they did or not in recent days. also their chem
. we have called for and we know that the u.n. is moving forward on investigation of what happened. we're monitoring the situation ourselves. i have said publicly that the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be a game-changer from our perspective. because once you let that situation spin out of control, it's very hard to stop and can have enormous spillover effects across the region. and so we are going to continue to closely consult with everybody in the region and do everything we can to bring an end to the bloodshed and to allow the syrian people to get out of a leader who has lost all legitimacy because he is willing to slaughter his own people. and i'm confident that assad will go, it's not a question of if, it's when. and so part of what we have to spend a lot of time thinking about is what's the aftermath of that. and how does that work in a way that actually serves the syrian people. and by the way, serves the syrian people from all walks of life. from all religious affiliations. because one of the things we know is happening in this region is that if we fail to c
state and a viable independent palestinian state. >> but israel is already a state. it is u.n. recognized. it is a state. the two-state solution presumes that israel isn't already a state. and abbas has written that he will never recognize israel's sovereignty. and creating a two states will only give them cause to internationalize a legal conflict with israel. >> the reality as we know it now, this is not, i'm not really debating this particular question. it is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who does not truly accept what we call a settlement based on a two-state solution. an independent, viable state. for the palestinians, in the west bank and gaza and occupied east jerusalem in a viable independent israeli state in the very heart of the arab world. you're absolutely correct. israel is an independent state. the question to you and to many israelis, israel must embed itself in its environment. israel must be integrated into the region as a good citizen as long as the palestinians, and i'm both as a scholar of the middle east and also as an american. as long as the
eastern countries but in terms of world opinion. look at the vote in the u.n. when we made every single effort possible to discourage countries from voting in favor of palestinian membership in the u.n. how many votes out of 190, out of 190 did we get? we found only seven countries to support us. this tells us something. and, therefore, we have to be very, very clear inning on ourselves what are our interests, how do we promote them? and we make it clear to the israelis on decisions of war and peace that involve us, namely, particularly in regards to iran, we are the ones who make the decisions. >> senator coons, a fairly interesting appearing yesterday of two united states senators, john mccain and carl levin of michigan in urging the administration to consider tougher steps with regard to syria. and when you hear repeatedly the phrase about chemical weapons perhaps being used in syria, the shadow of iraq seems to come back to many people. weapons of mass destruction. what is your sense within the united states senate right now about that shadow that got us into iraq lurking over any p
mortars fell near a mascus hotel where u.n. staffers have been staying. >> all of the national staff at that office have been asked to work from home until further notice. these measures are being undertaken solely for security reasons. the united nations remains active and committed to helping the syrian side in this political solution. >> this news comes as soil and blood samples are being smuggled out of syria, now in the hands of the u.n. they're testing it for nerve gas after the assad regime and the rebel forces accused one another of shooting off deadly missiles suspected of carrying chemical weapons. >>> and this is a sign you need new brakes. look at this. a cadillac smack dab on a roof of a house in california. the couple inside told our affiliate wabc they were driving down a hill and couldn't stop, turn a corner. next thing they knew, boom, off the road, in the air, on a roof. >> the air bag deployed and i don't even see where we're going from there because the view was obscured and i just couldn't stop. we're very, very lucky. >> so lucky indeed. a neighbor used a ladder
of that massacre. >> all right. the u.n. are ask being for unfettered access to syria as it launches an investigation to find out whether chemical weapons were used in the country's bloody civil war. the assad regime and rebel forces accuse each other of chemical warfare but u.s. military officials tell cnn their intelligence suggests neither side has used those weapons. >>> nearly 200 air traffic control towers on the chopping block. today, the ax will fall. the faa is likely to announce that the vast majority of 189 are up for closing today. they will shut down. they're victims of the forced spending cuts. the towers to be closed handle low to moderate amounts of air traffic and use mostly contract workers. >>> an independent analysis of the blackout at this year's super bowl finds fault with both equipment and the lines of communication. the power was cut off to have the mercedes-benz superdome causing a more than half hour delay in the game between the baltimore ravens and the san francisco 49ers. a design defect in a recently installed relay device caused the power to trip, and
done solely for security reasons after a number of mortar shells reigned down the hotel housing u.n. staff. most employees are being temporarily relocated to buy route and cairo. the move comes as violence rages across the region. a top rebel was wounded and dozens of new deaths being reported just today. >>> it was a sour day on wall street with stocks closing lower amid worries a bailout deal struck in cyprus could set a precedent for other debt-strapped eurozone nations. the s&p, dow can jones and nasdaq all ended down. cyprus struck a deal with european negotiators earlier today, which means big losses at account holders at bankses. >>> it may be spring, but, oh, boy, many parts of the country, including right here in washington, are getting a heavy dose of winter. a powerful storm is packing in some cases historic amounts of snow and blustery winds across the midwest, mid-atlantic, and southern states. winter storm warnings were posted today from new jersey down to north carolina and tennessee, prompting hundreds of flight cancellations and delays. >>> and serious fireworks on
is a game changer. >> reporter: the u.n. is investigating the incident. and congressional sources say that the intelligence committees have been briefed and that the administration has full authority to get militarily involved if chemical weapons, if there's any proof of chemical weapons. and in fact, that would be as the president has said, a game-changer. it would be the first u.s. military involvement in this conflict in the two-year conflict. natalie? >> andrea mitchell in jerusalem for us this morning, thank you, andrea. >>> u.s. officials tell nbc news this morning that new threats out of north korea are largely bluster. pyongyang says it will attack u.s. military bases in japan and guam, in response to joint u.s./south korean military exercises. >>> a internet attack on tuesday has been traced to a chinese internet address. but those addresses can be easily manipulated, meaning the exact source of the hack still remains uncertain. >>> a budget plan with sweeping cuts is on its way to the house for approval today. the spending bill would keep the government up and running throug
, the decision to invade kuwait then the u.n. sanctions that follow that in the effect it had on iraqi society made it all the more difficult for that society to move toward stability in the wake of the saddam hussein regime. i would blame al qaeda and iraq nd those who used masss murder as a principal tactic in the war. i would ask dr. zbigniew brzezinski to visit the cities in iraq that were rocked by these murderous attacks and ask them who they blame. hey blame the people who committed those murders. in 2005 when we went to a city where life was choked out of it because of a systematic attack by al qaeda, they turned that city into their training base. it is with a connected sniper training, medical training. these are not just insurgencies that happened because people to not like america. these are organizations that mobilize resources and people. this is an enemy organization. courses offer their included kidnapping and murder. they choked the life out of the city. schools have been closed for over a year. marketplaces have a cold. communities have fallen in on themselves -- marketplaces
the situation inside of syria. there are measures we have called for, and we know the u.n. is moving forward with investigations on exactly what happened. i have said publicly that the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be a game changer from our perspective. because, once you let that's the situation spend out of control, it is very hard to stop and that will have enormous spillover effects across the region. and so, we are going to continue to closely consult with everybody across the region and do everything we can to break -- bring an end to the bloodshed and to allow the syrian people to get out from under a leader who was lost all legitimacy because he is willing tarot slaughter his own people. -- he is willing to slaughter his own people. it is not a question of if. is when. part of what we have to think about is what is the aftermath going to affect? and by the way, we need to think about that in a way that serves the syrian people from all walks of life, from all religious affiliations. because one of the things we know about this region is that if we fail the -- to c

contributor and former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, john bolton. rick grinell and rick burns, a former ambassador to n.a.t.o. and secretary under president clinton and now you've got president obama morsi discussing the collapse of egypt. and that's something we don't want over here and that's one of the reasons we're keeping an eye over there. >> i don't see the prospect of the state collapsing, but i think that morsi's actions showed why people feared having a muslim brotherhood government in power, that it would be a one person, one vote, one time experience, and i have to say, the fact that the military so far is silent, could indicate they're prepared to acquiesce in this. although people have said that the brotherhood and the military could never come to an agreement on rule in egypt. i've always believed that's a possibility. so i think this is very, very serious and it's one reason i favor suspending both economic and military aid to egypt until this gets resolved. >> rick, where is this going? because you know, they got rid of hosni mubarak out there because he was d
